After 8 months, the writer decided that the passions had subsided, returned to the United States and was immediately arrested.

In 1970, John Stonehouse lost his ministerial seat after his party’s defeat in the elections.The politician decided to do business, but quickly mired in debt. Stonehouse decided to run and start a new life on the other side of the world. Using fake documents, he transferred 20 thousand dollars to the bank of New Zealand and thought about his “death”.
In November 1974, Stonehouse left his things on the beach in Miami to make it look like he drowned or fell victim to a shark, while he and his mistress Sheila Buckley left for Australia on forged documents. It seemed that the idea was a success: the Stonehouse was indeed recognized dead. However, the fugitive failed the same bank account. Manipulations with transfers caused suspicions among bank employees, and they reported to the police. True, at first the police thought that they had attacked the trail of the murderer count Lucan, who had disappeared two weeks before.
On December 24, 1974, John Stonehouse was arrested in Australia, six months later deported to the UK, sentenced to 7 years, but due to his health condition, he left early in 1979. In 1981, Stonehouse married Sheila Buckley, the next year they had a son.
John Stonehouse became a frequent guest on television and published three books, and at the end of his life he finally opened his small business for the production of hotel safes and electronics.

1883 — 1923
Czech writer
Celebrities who faked their death
Auto books about the gallant soldier Schweik died at 39 years old. Hasek’s health was undermined by two typhoid fevers and a love of drinking and fatty foods At the funeral of the writer attended by his wife and son and about a hundred residents of the village of Lipnice, where Hasek and his family lived the last two years of his life. Of the friends, only the artist Panushka arrived - the rest simply did not believe in the writer's death! Since 1915, when Hasek, being a soldier of the First World War, surrendered to Russian captivity, news about his death repeatedly appeared in the newspapers.
“I was hanged three times, twice shot, and once quartered by wild Kyrgyz rebels near Lake Kale-Isykh. Finally, I was finally slaughtered in a wild fight with drunken sailors in the Odessa tavern, ”the writer joked about his many obituaries.
In fact, Hasek was freed from captivity in 1916, went over to the side of the Entente, then went to Russia, where he joined the Communist Party and began to fight for the Red Army. Hasek successfully escaped from the Czech field court, pretending to be crazy, and returned to the "red". He served in Simbirsk, Samara, Bugulma, Chelyabinsk, Omsk, Krasnoyarsk and Ufa, where he met his second wife Alexandra Lvova.After the Civil War, Hasek and his wife remained to live in Irkutsk, but in 1920 the writer decides to return to his homeland in order to support the Czech Communists. In Prague, they did not wait for the "hanged man", "shot" and "killed" Hasek - the appearance of a living writer was a big surprise. Hasek liked “dying” so much that he joked about his death more than once. In addition, the writer loved to disappear not for several days, or even weeks, without even warning his wife.
As a result, when the writer did not really become, the news of his death was long considered the next “duck”.
